Dubai Marina | Where to Eat, Drink and Do Fun Activities

La Carnita
If you, like us, love Mexican food, then it’s time to make like Speedy Gonzales and hotfoot it to this super-cool new taqueria. We’ve waxed lyrical about the tacos earlier in this issue but they really are top-notch (our kingdom for the achiote chicken). The interiors are as impressive as the food – with massive murals, low-lighting and red leather banquettes to while away a cosy evening in. Undoubtedly one of the coolest spots to open in the area in a while, one to book right now.

Le Frenchy Dubai
Ooh la la, je ne sais quois, mais oui [insert favourite French cliché here]. There’s a brand-new French restaurant and bar in the Marina now – and it’s called, unoriginally, Le Frenchy. However, it does what it says on the tin by serving up a wide range of traditional French food including escargot, and pain perdu served with vanilla ice cream and salted caramel sauce. Apparently the aforementioned sauce is “so delicious it surely deserves its own Arc de Triomphe in celebration of its magnificence”. Bold claims.

Wagamama
“But this is just a chain,” we hear you cry. Yes, but next time nothing but a comforting chicken katsu curry will do when you’ve traipsed around the shops for hours, you know where you’ll be. Not only does this brand-new branch serve up all the classics, it is the only one in Dubai to open at 8am and serve breakfast. We’re talking about a mix of eastern and western dishes such as a classic eggs Benedict and full English (no, you first, we insist), alongside okonomiyaki – a savoury Japanese pancake.

800 Pizza
There’s never a wrong time for a pizza, and this Italian restaurant not only serves up a mean one in-house, Marina residents will know the doughy delights are also excellent for takeaways. And, in a power move for vegans, the chain has also launched a dairy- and meat- free version, so you no longer need to miss out on the pizza party.

Asia Asia
You can smell Asia Asia as soon as you step out of the lifts at Pier 7. In the best possible way, of course. The delightful lemongrass-scented interiors are as stunning as the views out across Dubai Marina. Venture through the dimly lit corridor you’ll find a spacious, classy bar with plush seating and cool décor. As well as the food this trendy Asian spot has a cracking ladies’ night – so good in fact that it’s one of our former Best Ladies’ Night winners. This one is as much where to eat as where to party, but we love the food so we’re sticking it in this part of the list (don’t miss the tempura prawns).

Marina Social
This swanky British restaurant from British Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton is a popular spot for many a reason – not least for the food. Classic dishes get a modern twist and the restaurant also serves up deals including a roast dinner with proper, crispy roast potatoes (be still our beating hearts) and a twice weekly Social Club – in essence a night brunch where you’ll get unlimited drinks and a three course meal for Dhs350. In the winter the terrace is a perfect spot to watch the boats below.

RÜYA
If you’re looking for a particularly pretty spot – and love a pide (like a boat-shaped Turkish pizza-pie hybrid) then make a date here. We named this place Best MENA Restaurant at our Restaurant Awards 2018 (it also picked up the 2017 Best Fine Dining Newcomer gong). The stylish Turkish restaurant at Grosvenor House Dubai boasts views over the Marina, and winter is the time to go as the terrace is decked out with twinkling fairy lights and Anatolian furnishings. There’s also an amazing deal on right now – every night you can get two drinks and a pide for just Dhs99.
